I have finished planning my trip for May and using the advice in this thread I have been successful in booking all my accommodations. I appreciate all your support and advice to try it instead of using a booking service and I did it! It was far less expensive than I thought it would be and less stressful. I havent got my phone bill yet but I dont think itll be bad. I am absolutely ready and cant hardly wait still spring, how exiting! Thanks everybody! Well see how it goes.

Re: Phone Bill. I use a calling card purchased at Sam's (AT&T) and the calls to GB cost about 15 cents per minute. I think that is a good deal, but we'll see when you get your phone bill.

Hi walkingcouple2. We did the C2C last year in August (was that the same time as you?) We are doing the WHW the last week in April, followed by the Great Glen way the first week in May. We can email you our itinerary if you want to adapt it for August.

Hi WalkingCouple2,
what a pity you are booked for the end of August as my wife and I are looking at the beginning of September!! We would have enjoyed your company I'm certain !!
I hope you have good weather and enjoy the walk...I know that part of Scotland very well and the views are spectacular so make certain your camera has plenty of spare batteries or spare spools as the case may be LOL
Cheers,
Bill.

I have just walked the West Highland Way over 6 days and it was thoroughly enjoyable. Fortunately the weather held!

I found the route to be very quiet but perhaps that is normal for the end of March.

The days were as follows

1. Milngavie - Balmaha
2. Balmaha - Inversnaid
3. Inversnaid - Crianlarich
4. Crianlarich - Bridge of Orchy
5. Bridge of Orchy - Kinlochleven
6. Kinlochleven - Fort William.

I was quite pleased with my self as I have never done any distance walking.

Well done on your completion of the Way. I hope you thoroughly enjoyed your walk. As I keep saying anyone can do it . Well done.

I would recommend it to anyone wanting to give it a go.

I would say out of the whole walk my favourite part of the way would be between Tyndrum and Kinlochleven.

Hopefully as the season moves on the mud at the farm 1 mile short of Crianlarich will have dried up [img]http://www.coast2coast.co.uk/ubb/redface.gif[/img])

Hi Tony and Anne! We started in St.Bees on 30/07 and arrived in RHB on 15/08.Probably you overtook us somewhere on the way. It was our first long distance walk and when we planned the legs in advance we underestimated ourselves a bit. But we enjoyed every single day and were glad to have enough time to do so.Lets hope that the WHW will turn out equally good!Actually Im quite optimistic with all the enthusiastic messages in this forum and I cant wait to start off. I wish you good weather, nice people on the way and lots of fun. Enjoy it!
Claudia
